Have you ever picked up a pack of hazelnut meal at the grocers or wholefood market? If not, then THIS my friends should be an ingredient you have in your fridge (right next to old trusty almond meal) on the reg. It is truly scrumptious in baking and raw treats (hi Nutella inspired bliss balls for a weekday kick!) including this absolutely divine Gluten Free Hazelnut Raspberry Brownie recipe. If you only shop at the big supermarkets you’ll find it there too, you don’t have to go out of your way to hunt it down – simple right? And so worth it. Enjoy this treat, it’s a goodie for the weekend to share with friends.
